Azure Portal

The recommended method to create your credentials is using Powershell. It can be run locally or directly from the Azure Portal, and offers a much simpler approach.

Using the Azure Portal

There are quite a few steps required to allow Hava to access your Azure resources using the Azure Portal.

To allow Hava to import your Azure account you will need to provide access by creating an Active Directory (Microsoft Entra ID) application and assigning read-only permissions to it. To create Entra ID applications you will need admin access to the Azure account.

Creating a Microsoft Entra ID (Active Directory) Application

  1. Using the search bar in the Azure Portal interface, search for Entra ID

  2. Click and open Microsoft Entra ID from the search results

  1. Select App Registration from the left side menu within Azure Active Directory

Register an application

Enter the following details to register the application.

  1. Name: Hava

  2. Application Type: Web

  3. Redirect URI:

  4. Click Register

Assign Roles to the Application

This will step you through adding a role for the application at the subscription level; this will grant Hava access to read everything in your account but not make any changes. You can also apply the access to a specific resource group or groups, or even individual resources - Hava will only draw the resources you give it access to.
